The last thing a busy student wants to do is spend vast amounts of time cleaning, while recognizing this task as one of the “necessary evils” of college life. Rather than wasting the time and money to purchase traditional chemically-based cleaning products, finding the space to fit a mop and bucket, and other supplies, students should consider the faster, more effective and chemical-free solution to ridding their living areas of germs and messes – steam cleaning.
Steam cleaning is a quick and easy way to make the worst mess disappear while also eliminating germs on contact. Additionally, it doubles as an effective way to quickly eliminate wrinkles in those unworn garments waiting to be pressed. Other key benefits of steam cleaning for the college student include destroying bedbugs and dust mites in just minutes– just add water!
The EnviroMate Pronto P7 offers all the powerful benefits of steam cleaning in a mini, accessible size that won’t crowd-up an already tiny dorm room or apartment and comes with 15 attachments. Here are a few cleaning tips for the college student looking to get the job done quickly, effectively and easily:
- Flip the mattress. This will help maintain the shape of the mattress over time. Use the Pronto P7 to sanitize the entire mattress ridding it of any germs, dust mites, allergens and bed bugs.
- Take wrinkled garments that are “unwearable” and put on hangers. Use the Pronto P7 to steam out wrinkles and also remove any odors that may have collected over time. When done, let the “press set” for a few minutes before hanging garments in the closet – this will ensure that fresh, unwrinkled look is set in the garments. Hang in the closet and enjoy the fact that you now have a new wardrobe!
- Make a list of the cleaning tasks that you have been putting off because they seemed too difficult. Start with the kitchen and use the Pronto P7 to clean the kitchen counters, the sink, microwave and any other surface that is in need of attention. Move on to the bathroom to remove the grime and mildew, and clean grout in the bathtub/shower area. The Pronto P7 can even be used for the dreaded task of cleaning on and around the toilet.
Reliable products continue to succeed! Our Steamboy T1 and EnviroMate Pronto P7 were awarded the Consumers Digest Best Buy Award in the category of steam cleaners. Their tank capacity and cleaning power proved to be best in class!
